As concerned citizens, we were pleased to attend the recent public meeting about the proposed Baltimore Washington Intermodal Rail Facility. This facility will play a major role in Maryland's long-term economic growth by supporting the expansion of the Port of Baltimore and providing additional rail access.
This project is a great example of the public-private partnerships that everyone is talking about, which will help rebuild our economy and infrastructure at a time we need it most. The state of Maryland should look for more ways to maximize taxpayers' money through public-private partnerships like this project. Applying private dollars to deliver public benefits makes sense for Maryland businesses and the jobs and citizens they support.
